I'm picking up a used .22 Synrod and am looking for a scope. Here are my paramaters: 3-12X, mil-dot reticle, side AO, "light" weight, budget of $200ish. After a week of intense internet searching I've narrowed it down to two: the Athlon Talos 3-12x40 (#215004) or the Leapers 3-12x44 (SCP3-3124AOMD). I was able to only find a handful of Athlon 3-12 reviews but they were pretty positive. My best friend has this Leapers model and it's been a great scope. Here's how they compare.
Athlon $150 16.2oz 12" long 4 mil-dots
Leapers $110 21.2oz 14" long 6 mil-dots
I'm really looking for some feedback from people with firsthand knowledge of the Athlon 3-12. I like the lower weight of the Athlon but like the 6 mil-dots of the Leapers and the $40 difference isn't really a factor.
